Leading as a Human Resource Professional: Influencing Organizational Change
Keith A. Friede
Area Vice President, Talent & Organization Development Practice Leader, North Central Region
Arthur J. Gallagher & Co.
It's the challenge of every serious HR professional - operating more strategically, to be more influential and get a "seat at the head table." But crafting a brilliant strategy is only a start, because the world is not likely to beat a path to your doorstep. In this session, we'll go beyond the "what" to address what is, arguably, more important - the "how": establishing credibility as a business
professional, developing your ability to influence, developing a dense web of trusting relationships inside and outside your organization, and communicating more effectively as a leader. You'll have an opportunity in the session to actively begin developing action plans for improving your business influence, expanding your network, and communicating - and to practice all three with new network acquaintances!
At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:
About Our Speaker
